The Astrology Of Bad Boys

Filed in Uncategorized

Kim Falconer has posted an excellent article re Bad Boys, and a shorter version here on the Voyager Book Blog.

Astrologically, of course, you look to your Mars to explain any ongoing attraction to these creatures. It’ll be a revved up Mars with aspects to Pluto, Jupiter, Uranus…something. Mars is the kind of men (or boys) you like to mess with.

I blame my Mars-Pluto-Uranus in the 8th for sticking with The Uranian so long…Well, longer than his performance would suggest that a sane woman would consider. Hot helps, of course.

I know an otherwise mega-sensible Virgo who continued to date a Bad Boy Aries after he not only got arrested in the middle of their third date at a Gold Class Cinema but decided to resist arrest, thus resulting in the evacuation of the cinema.

Yes, they’ve most likely got a fuqed up Mars vibe but look at YOUR Mars first…I say this sans judgement. More like with love and bemused empathy.

Read Kimmy’s brill article and then please come back  here & share your stories of Bad Boy Romance.

Your Sign-His-Sign and any transit you were going thru  is a bonus.

I’m keeping this as boys because either you or they are meant to grow out of this by the time they’re men.

“I want your loving, i want your lover’s revenge…me and you could write a bad romance..”

i dont know why that songs in my head when i read about bad boys…

well… virgo sun with Mars/Eros in Scorpio tightly conjunct, three degrees apart from saggo Uranus, which I count as a conujunction, too, though out of sign… all of this squaring Leo moon, opposing taurus chiron. yes i had my share of bad boys… irresisitble but i got over them, after the third or fourth one… i count it on chiron which also trines my sun, i guess thuis enegry is helpful for healing pointless desire… now i am with the most wonderful, beautiful, sensible man… a capricorn with basically everythin ion saggo except a scorpio moon, which is – surprise… Read more »

So I am an otherwise sensible Virgo sun, but with Mars in Scorpio, conjunct Eros, all squaring my Venus-Ascendant in Leo! To say I’ve had my share of bad boys is an understatement…married rock stars, disturbed pop singers, drug addicted football players, alcoholic actors, diabolical doctors…you get the idea! The thing is, the attraction is almost always instantaneous and mutual. And I’ve come to realise that these men (boys!) have actually been my greatest teachers, and actually after the affair (or mind fucking non-affair in some cases) finishes, i’ve stayed friends with most of them. I see them as great… Read more »

so true Z. You also have to when when you are idealisig a relationship ( I am expert at i.e coating it in sugar) The lusty leo has def been a teacher but not partner material and thats ok with me. he has taught me patience and acceptance and him having a strong aqua influence I gotta ahve lots in spades or am I being too nice? who knows or cares he makes me swoon and has def become more attentive and caring outside the boudoir.

With HOT SWAT leader dude (that has so much testosterone I can feel him “snap crackle Pop” the moment he enters my orb) continues to move in for the conquering of moi’ (thinks he’s going unnoticed ha! Scorpio misses “nothing”) I read in Mystics Scopes for Thursday….. “Some of you are soon entertaining a studly new suitor – if you like men – as Mars barges into your House of Love till late June.”

Seems Mystic doesn’t miss much either. 🙂

I have always, always, always been attracted to the bad boys. The ones i have dated have been hot and totally unattainable, yet they made me feel sexy and ‘wanted’ by being in their company. Strange though, that my Mars is in Virgo and any guy i’ve ever dated/ had a relationship with, who has had any Virgo in him has been too ‘feminine’ for my liking. I’m Sagg with Aries rising, so i have this innate attaction to action, fun and good times; hence mr bad boy…. i think i should have been a biker chick; that sort of… Read more »

Scorpio with Aries rising, Mars in Sag, couple of Pluto hits, I’m very Martian and can’t stand men who seem weak or sensitive which means I end up with macho, jerk offs usually Aries or Leo, never Sagittarius (male Sags are annoying as hell to me) who just can’t help but fall into ‘bad boy’ zone. No motorbike riding felons or anything, just arrogant, duplicitous twerps with glorious amounts of issues. Like a moth, to a flame.

Bad boys aren’t really bad in themselves. They’re pretty sensitive and (like to) feel misunderstood. They are all about DRAMA. The erotic drama, the tragedy of love drama, the fashion drama, the need to live with you drama, the die without you drama, the too close drama, the in-laws drama, the friend drama, the triangle drama. And as for being bad, they like to lead. When led they can only go so far…scaredy-cats! Perhaps think they can exercise power over the little piscean. Mars in Capricorn…will never become dependent. And can match his drama, up the stakes and feel SUPER… Read more »

I tried to friend request my bad boy from high school on facebook. Just for the hell of it. I can see some of his profile…. he is completely NOT the same guy. When I knew him he was rooting around, two-timing arsewipe. Now he’s got a steady girlfriend and looks like he might marry her or something. Ok, not really that much of a big deal and high school was 7 years ago. But still. What I like about him though, his standards in women have never dropped. He always has a good looking girl. I remember saying to… Read more »

LOL. I just finished reading Fight Club, and that is DEFINITELY not the right metaphor for bad boys. But I’m not going to explain, because you girls wouldn’t understand. The first rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club.

Mars in Cancer and I used to always be attracted to dark, broody types who I tried to heal. I have Mars opposition Jupiter, Mars conjunct Venus, Mars square Pluto & Uranus…bad, right? Last REALLY bad boy was this pick-up artist (he’s in The Game and has since written his own book), who was a Capricorn, moon in Cancer, Mars in Gemini. He had Mars trine Pluto, Venus opposition Mars, and Mars opp. Asc (problems getting along with people!). We had an inexplicable chemistry together despite the fact that we were both very strong-willed and always having a power struggle.… Read more »

Mars in Taurus, and my Descendant is also Taurus. I’ve never considered myself attracted to “bad boys,” just men who’re strong-willed. Wimps shant be tolerated! I also have Venus in Cancer and though I never realized it until recently, I seem to be big on stability. I’ve certainly put up with people who’re “flighty,” but never romantically. They’re fun as friends and for a laugh but I can’t imagine being with someone who was all over the place. It’d drive me crazy! Mars and Venus are sextile. Mars is in opposition with Pluto in Scorp. It also squares my Leo… Read more »

I have Mars in 3 Virgo widely conjunct Uranus and Pluto at 14 Virgo and 15 Virgo.

Bad boys bore me.

I like the brave, upstanding, classic heroes, especially if they have been through something tragic, and are wounded and stoic and uncomplaining 🙂

Mars in Virgo one house along from Uranus and Pluto in Libra, not aspected.

Bad boys bore me too. But charming, genuinely wounded boys I could impact on or nurture made me crazy! So often they looked bad, but weren’t.. Sigh.

I have an upstanding, classic hero husband who I adore. Guess I grew up! He never complains. I find it unnerving.

where’s your saturn? If it’s in the 10th you might be attracted to peeps who’ve spent time in the big house so yes you might be – surely you know the answer to that better than anyone else tho?

wow yes my saturn is in capricorn in the 11th house! wow. i have always known that i am attracted to the “bad” boys (the troublemakers who are a terrible idea to like), but just wanted to see if my chart astrologically showed this, too. craziness!

whatevs

crikey how’s that having saturn in its own sign? I mean I have it in the 10th and that’s enough of a dose to bring anyone to their knees – you have it in house of friends & goals – do you attract friends/men who wear uniforms? People with quite rigid ideas? And how does it all work in the house of uranus? Does it take some of the concrete vibe of saturn away from it? That’s a quirky mix that one – where’s your uranus? You have pisces ascendant? Soz for all the questions but that’s an interesting combo… Read more »

haha, thanks! =p my uranus is actually in capricorn in the 11th house, too. i recently dated a guy (but for a very short time) who is going into the marines in the future, and i did attract a guy who was thinking about going into the army. and i don’t think the guys i attract have more rigid ideas than other people, but who knows. my ascendant is 29 degrees aquarius rising– but my mom thinks that i am basically a pisces rising (she’s an astrologist so she’s obviously really into this stuff, too). i think i’m def a… Read more »

uranus rules the 11th house/aquarius so I was wondering about how it was aspected re your saturn in the 11th in cap because they’re such different energies. Interested in how the saturnine things – locks and keys and uniforms and all those quite uptight serious things were juxtaposed with the uranian lightning bolt, earthquake symbolism in your chart. Cos they’re such big energies to work with and especially in that house which involves the outside world as opposed to the inner life a pisces ascendant implies.

oh i see, well my uranus actually does not aspect my saturn. my uranus is conjunct neptune, my sun trines uranus, and my moon is sextile to uranus.

I have mars in scorpio and after some net research, realise I have been attracted consistently to bad boys with mars or venus in scorp or just plain sun scorps…is that how it works? (I’ve never fathomed the house stuff.) In general, I like scorps as people because they are smart, obsessive, sensitive and loyal to their friends…I don’t seem to have the problems with them that others do, at least not at the friendship level.

I think for me (and I have Sun, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Uranus in Scorpio so maybe that makes it worse) the trouble comes when the very good Scorpio male friends become love interests…and they inevitably do because the connection is so strong, no matter how destructive it later becomes. My ex-Scorpy badboy ironically has Venus, Mercury and Pluto in Scorpio. So strong passionate attraction, but trying to communicate was a verbal sparring match.

I don’t know, but it used to bother me looking at it because it leaves things out and has inaccurate scale. I have a map fetish, I think, and thought this was cute at first. But overall I found it aggravating to look at for very long!

I’m Mars-Moon conjunction within like 0.05 of a degree, so let’s just be honest about this, I seem to fall for total saps.
But they are opposite Eros and my Descendant, and I’ve noticed the bad boys seem to go for me!! Probably some icky mothering, nurturing need that I satisfy and should either utterly avoid or start to find a way to cash-in on…

Meanwhile – I want that soap!!!
And maybe also a little of the bad boy holding it.

Creepy moment lexi I actually shuddered – isn’t that soap he’s holding made from melted human flesh?

Soap is the creepiest thing ever – i mean it’s stealth creepy – when you tell people they’re coating themselves in a layer of fat they don’t believe you. We don’t have it in cakes at our house unless it’s that kind made of olive oil – I use salt and a brush to wash myself in the shower. Can’t stand that weird coated feeling.

maybe something at end of cancer and something at beginning of scorpio?
That means mars would probably be on the descendant as well?
Am thinking that makes scorpinthesky potentially quite attractive to bad boys? Are there sudden requests for you to talk dirty?

Thanks for the heads up guys. I THOUGHT that was a square. Ergo not good, I am attracted to bad boys and subsequent pain. I’ll have to look up astrodienst again. Maybe not as gloomy as I thought.

Mars IS on my descendent. I will have to look out for what that means.

I think bad boys are attracted to me initially but then when I reciprocate feelings – no. But funny about the dirty talk, you’re right about those requests.

Bad boys? Totally i vote Saggittarian Men, for me always, with nicknames like ‘Spike’, ‘Butch’, what does THAT tell you! Not the type one cooks a dinner for or even attempts to invite to anything at all really ‘cept le boudoir. The only one’s Mars i know is in Leo. And none of them intelligent ( and that for me is can be apowerful aphrodisiac), but far more street wise than me with hip jargon to go with it, or maybe it’s bogan cliches that turns me on.

Someone named Spike followed me around for a while. Showed up at my preppy college with a skull earring and a mohawk. I don’t know why he liked me. But he sort of floated in the periphery for a while.

Later I named my first cat Spike (a female, though, and not so much in memory of the guy–just a funny name for a kitten)

Mars in Virgo conjunct Venus in Libra (both in my 7th house)! Totally immune to bad boys. I’ve always steered clear.

Of course, I’m hopeless for the the strong, silent, noble types, who…don’t actually seem to exist outside of old movies, so I shouldn’t gloat.

I tell you that you will become attached to the show quickly. I love how they mix the humor in with the drama, its perfect. My problem with season 3 is that the writers seem to loose sight of them “being human” (the offbeatness again) and its alot more like a sensational thriller. Still very poignant though.

Hmm bad boys…

I would say had a few in my teenage years, but think my Mars-Saturn Scorp in 6th house keeps me from getting entangled in them. I tend to see straight through them.

I do like to play, but have completely changed my taste in men over the past year..going for boring, financially secure types now. Toro, is Mars Toro in 6th house as well….

oh dear…
me: mars inconjunct pluto. Mars is also the point of a YOD between pluto, mars, and neptune. Mars trine moon.

my bad boy: Check to all 6 of her criteria. He has pluto inconjunct mars also. He also has the notorius Mars square neptune.
We just broke up a week ago after over 2 years and are both reeling. Shattered soulmates. Praying I can make it through this.
